Unable to install SSD on Win7 x64 system

Q: Unable to install SSD on Win7 x64 system

I bought a Samsung 840 SSD (120GB) for my gigabyte GA-770T-USB3 motherboard. I am unable to install win 7 64bit on it. It is a SATA SSD.

I have tried ACHD mode in the BIOS, I have tried IDE mode. The drive works as I have tested it as an external drive on other computers.

I bought the drive specifically to be used as a primary drive.

My regular hard drives work fine on the motherboard.

Preferred Solution: Unable to install SSD on Win7 x64 system

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Unable to install SSD on Win7 x64 system

Well, first of all, your motherboard only supports 3GB/s and the 840 is a 6GB/s drive. Just by that you won't really get your moneys worth. And how so are you unable to install? Also can you please list your system specs?

I had 32 bit win7 home premium provided by OEM. Recently I purchased win7 professional 64 bit in order to increase my memory.(My system is 64 bit capable) I followed [1]. I am using USB for installation. I booted the system with USB. Then at disk manager I deleted all the partitions(including recovery ) Then I refreshed and click next and I got an error saying setup unable to create system partition. I also tried diskpart clean. Still no hope. So I am stuck with a formated laptop. Want to get this working soon. Can anyone of you kindly enlighten me on this issue.


A:Win7 64 bit clean install error. unable to create system partition.

Where did you get the Win 7 that you want to install?

I strongly suspect a bad Win 7 or a hacked Win 7 as the cause.

Hello all,

I have a vaio laptop with a dual boot win7/vista setup. I simply want to format the whole drive back to one large c:\drive, then reinstall windows 7. I have heard horror stories of people saying their boot manager becomes corrupted. or goes missing. I enclose a snapshot of my hard drive config. I would appreciate any advice on this matter.


A:A fresh win7 install over a win7/vista dual boot system ?

is it the only HDD in the laptop (i used to think 1 was the max but i've been encountering people with two recently)? If so, (and if you want to wipe the hard drive completely (don't forget to deactivate any programs, such as iTunes)) just put the install disc in, boot into it (without booting into windows), choose the install option that isn't 'upgrade' (i think it's 'custom' offhand). when it takes you to the partition manager, click 'advanced' on the bottom bit and delete and format all partitions until you have just one big empty disk.
If that doesn't work or if you think it might not, just boot into a Puppy Linux live cd, open up gparted and select the 'new partition table' tool.

i am unable to install win7 64 bit ult ed. I got it from my brother. its alegal copy... the computer has a win7 32bit installed, upgraded the computer for 64bit. but the disc is not readabler when booting up... i cant start it when the computer is on and at the desktop. should i try to get it transfer to a usb drive and try to boot up???

A:Unable to install win7 x64 ult

For one thing you can not upgrade Windows 7 32bit with a 64bit Windows 7 disk. If you want to upgrade to a different version of Windows 7 it has to be a 32bit version.

For the disk not reading does your cd/dvd drive show up in Device Manager and in Bios?

A friend of mine got the FBI virus so she backed up all her data then began the process of a quot system restore quot but it did not work I ve walked her through install Unable Win7 to downloading the Unable to install Win7 original ISO file for Win Home Premium from Digital River and she has the product key attached to the side of her computer so licensing isn t an issue I also had her download the USB-ISO Unable to install Win7 tool so she can make her USB drive bootable with the ISO as she doesn t have blank DVD s to burn the ISO I m having her get some blank DVD s to see if that will work The problem is that the installation starts and comes up with the quot Install Now quot button and she clicks on that but the install comes up asking for drivers for additional drives as it can t find the existing Windows installation I ve tried having her remove the partition completely via quot Diskpart quot but that s proving too difficult for her and I can t get to her location to do this myself as I m about miles away trying to do this all over facebook IM lol Anyone know what type of drivers this thing needs to get Win reinstalled She doesn t have the factory disks otherwise I would have just told her to stick that in and go from there nbsp

A:Unable to install Win7

System Restore is not the way to fix the FBI virus. Does this system still boot into Windows as I should be able to fix it even if it won't boot to the desktop. If you can get her to log onto this site and subscribe to this thread I can guide her through it.

The drivers error that comes up when trying to install Windows AFAIK is related to the mode the hard drive is set to, get her to go into the Bios and check it is on AHCI or IDE. You might find it has got set to RAID.

I just brought a new PC of following specifications

1. AMD Phenom X4 (9650) - Quad Core
2. ASUS M3A78-EM Motherboard
3. 500 GB SATA HDD
4. 2 GB DDR2 RAM

The problem is after the loading screen after I click enter to boot from DVD
I get a screen where a wallpaper comes ... and after that no setup thing starts

I am very annoyed with this ... also tell me which one will be best for me x86 or x64

A:Unable to install Win7 on my new PC

i don't know why, but sometimes it takes a long time for the next part of setup (the eula, iirc) to appear.

when i installed 7 recently on my old kitchen pc, it took a good five minutes to appear (admittedly much lower spec hardware than yourself).

so, try it again, and be patient. it might just work.

Been trying to install SP1 since 2011 and have never managed to do it. Fails with error code 80073712.
I have tried all recommended MS hotfixes without success.
SFC report produced yesterday attached, which implies something corrupted, somewhere ?

Any help appreciated, without SP1 I cannot get to IE11 or WIN10 (assuming I want to .......).

I would not, at this stage, want to attempt a major WIN7 "repair" or any kind of clean install (no...I dont have the WIN7 came preloaded in 2010.... been there with other OS versions and got the scars.

A:Consistently unable to install WIN7 SP1

The errors on the system file check log are not responsible for the failure to install SP1
The errors listed are of no consequence
In view of the time involved in this, by that I mean since 2011 it has the makings of a long job
I am more than prepared to help, but please assure me that you are staying with the topic to either a successful conclusion or I admit defeat
Also please tell me what has been tried as it is to some extent pointless going down the same approach

Hey guys , this is my first post here .
I've been running win7 x64 for some time now . Now , i needed to install XP 32bit for some programs to run.
I had 3 partitions (C,D,E) on windows 7 which were nearly full(except C which was the boot drive) . So using the Disk Management tool of Win7 , i shrunk one of the partitions which created some unallocated space . Now i created a new partition in that unallocated space and named it K. It is in this drive that i wanted to install XP.

So, when i try installing XP on that partition , it just wont happen. XP recognises it as Unpartitioned space . I tried to select the 'Delete Partition' option to no avail. Im kinda stuck here and any help would be appreciated . Thanks

A:Unable to install XP on win7 (for dual boot)

You can consider this failure a blessing in disguise.
Installing an old OS on new hardware is problematic at best and almost impossible at worst. And that goes double for laptops. The initial problem is that XP does not natively support SATA hard drives which your computer is likely using. Thiis can usually be solved.

Another problem is availability of device drivers. The XP CD will not have drivers for new hardware as it did not exist when the disk was produced. You may or may not be able to obtain them from the manufacturer.

There are usually better options than dual booting with an old OS.

1. Try compatibility more. This is accessible from the programs properties dialog in Windows Explorer.

2. XP mode if is is available for youe edition of Windows 7.

3. Install a virtual machine such as VirtualBox or VirtualPC. You can then install XP under that.

Had the same problem... figured it out... it was not a Sata Contorller driver issue at all. 1. Turned off Secure Boot, & Enabled Legacy.2. Turn USB 3.0 BIOS setting to act as AUTO so that OS installations treat USB ports as 2.0 Compatable3. HD partition scheme needed to be reset.. not sure what it was.  Hooked it up to my Mac and under parition, set it to 1 Partition and chose MBR as the partition table layout scheme. Hope this helps, but still having problem with Nvidia Graphics Drivers and Intel Chipset drivers

I can't install Win7 x64 SP1 on notebook Lenovo Z70-80 from USB 2.0 pendrive.

I was trying USB 2.0 ports and USB 3.0 port with no success.

Than I integrated latest intel USB 3.0 and storage drivers into boot.wim and install.wim using DISM tool and there is still no success - the installer can't find Windows 7 installation pendrive. There are disk partitions and mounted boot.wim in drop-down list, but even USB mouse doesn't work.

PS I'm sure that it is USB issue - not storage. I added storage drivers "just in case".
PS2 I'm sure that USB 3.0 and storage drivers are correct.

It looks like Windows 7 can't even see USB 2.0 ports.
Any ideas?

I recently bought a Dell Inspiron Mini 1018 per loaded with Windows 7. Tried installing XP on a partition on the same HHD. Installation failed saying "Windows could not start because of a computer disk hardware configuration problem ...etc"

The only option i have is to boot off the usb i created with xp iso and press R to take me to XP recovery console. I am so over XP at the moment all i want is to be able to log into Win7 again.

How can i fix this? My understanding is that the MBR is still pointing to the XP partition. How do i change it back to the Win 7 partition (C:\)?

The laptop did not come with any cds or recovery disks but i have a recovery partition on the HDD that i cannot access.

Please help to log back into Windows 7.

I connect to this Windows 7 machine using the remote desktop connection from my PC running on XP. But the install DOES NOT happen on the Windows 7 remote desktop. It just refreshes the screen and nothing else happens.
If i try to install the same thing on another Win 7 PC ( to which i connect directly and not through remote desktop ), i am able to install the activex control.

A:[SOLVED] BOOTMGR is missing, unable to install win7

if you are certain that it is not a driver issue then i would suggest that your hdd has a corrupted partition table or mbr; basically a list of non existant partitions.

try running a boot cd with a partition manager and make sure there are no existing partions on the drive. also if the partition manager has the option "repair mbr", do that. then create a new ntfs partition.

after that restart your pc with your windows 7 dvd in try to install. your created partition should appear during setup.

Secure Boot is only for Windows 8 so it must be turned off. Then if you have CSM test whether it needs to be enabled to install Win7. If not look for Legacy BIOS or Legacy Boot.

Just to clarify:

You already have XP installed on C:\ and then wish to install W7 on a sepereate partition d:\?

Once W7 is installed you plan to format and remove the XP partition completely, without loosing the ability to boot into W7?

If you lose the ability to boot W7 after formatting your XP partition, use your 7 installation dvd to perform a start up repair which will repair your boot loader.

Grub loader will give you two boot option one that will boot to Ubuntu and another that will load Windows 7 boot loader(normally denoted by DOS os). From there you should be able to boot into the three windows os.

If I DO NOT see these options, does this mean my Win7 DVD is a OEM version?
Sorry, I am rusty on this, and is there any way to tell on the box or DVD if its OEM or not? I just picked it up from a local Tech shop.
But, according to this guide below, I should get this option to select 64 or 32 bit and I do not get a prompt for this. It just takes me to the formatting section.

A:Win7 - 'Select the operating system you want to install' MISSING

Windows 7 only comes on a dvd with either 32 bit or 64 bit software, not both. What you see or are referring to is a dvd that`s been burned with both bit versions on it. It is not sold that way.

If you do not know what they sold you, you won`t know until after it`s installed.

You paid for it, you should know exactly what they sold you, either oem or retail.

Although, I`ve just looked and seen both bit versions can come on 1 dvd. Your key will activate either the 32 or 64 bit software.

Hello desertdad, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You could purchase and use either an upgrade or full retail/OEM version of Windows 7 if you like, but you will have to use the product key that came with the purchased Windows 7 instead. A Vista or XP key will not activate Windows 7.

I posted this on a Toshiba-specific many on primary Win7 too Recover/install partitions? multiboot system- forum too but I'm thinking I'll get more responses here I have a few questions first background questions Recover/install Win7 on multiboot system- too many primary partitions? and then I'll get to the heart of the issue First on a new Toshiba laptop with factory installed Win there are primary partitions - a GB quot MBR- quot a GB quot recovery quot partition and the main installation partition What is the GB one for and what's on it An MBR certainly doesn't need GB Does Win create that or is that something unique for Toshiba If I'm using a rd party boot-manager BootitNG via an EMBR on its own partition can I just wipe that GB partition And can the recovery installation be set up to create the Toshiba-Win recovery partition and that GB one as extended volumes within the Win primary partition and not to make them as its own new primary partition But would they function as extended volumes And now to the main problem the gist of it is how many partitions will the Win recovery disks create and can I customize it I have a new toshiba c laptop that came with Win installed I created the one-time recovery DVDs first thing it made of them - Disk and quot -bit environment quot I then wanted to set up a multi-boot system between Win and instances of XP one of which is a fresh install the other being an image backup off a computer that died I want each OS on its own primary partition where each only sees knows of itself and each is its own C Also I'll have one small MB primary partition for the boot-manager program Of course a drive can only have primary partitions if working with standard tools like fdisk etc To get around that if needed my boot-manager program will support as many primary partitions as I want provided I use only it alone to manage create my partitions Skipping the background here's what I have now I wiped the hard drive except for that GB MBR- partitition for now till I find what it is Since XP doesn't recognize Win using XP's install cd would overwrite the factory Win installation so I installed XP first on its own primary partition - and it's working fine Plus I don't want to use the Windows boot menu anyway just the boot manager's I have the boot manager program on a second primary partition and that GB partition exists too I then created more primary partitions - one to place the XP-drive-image into and one to install Win So the entire drive is now fully utilized and partitioned primaries via the boot manager But here's the problem starting with the boot manager program I'm pointing to boot from the empty Win- partition which will cue it to boot from the DVD and go on about its installation business So far so good At this point Win will only quot see quot the empty partition reserved for it However if Win tries to create an extra or new primary partitions like how it came from the factory my XP partitions would likely get overwritten Having - primary partitions wouldn't be a problem as long as I create manage them only with the boot manager - but in this case the Win installation would likely create them during installation instead If I pre-create those partitions the GB one and the GB one with the boot manager can I point Win during the installation to utilize those How One more side note When I'm in XP now XP only quot sees quot it's own partition but still senses that there's more room on the drive - it just considers it all as unallocated space I'm guessing Win would do the same thing And if it does I'm worried it would start sticking its own new partitions there into what it quot sees quot as quot unallocated space quot even though my other partitions are there If you made it through this longwinded mess thanks for what help you can provide How should I get Win on there through the boot manager program without damaging the existing partitions

A:Recover/install Win7 on multiboot system- too many primary partitions?

All of this could be avoided by virtualizing XP in Win7 using Ultimate's XP Mode, Virtual Box or Virtual Player. Most XP apps and drivers which balk can be made to run using Win7 Compatibility Mode

Depends also on how badly you want to keep the current partitioning. The 1.5gb is likely your System Active boot partition (check in Disk Mgmt) containing utilities that you may not even want since Win7 has better versions. You can see what's on it by showing hidden folders. I would also check the free space because you could keep it, since its best to have a boot partition with multi-boots - which can be installed to Logical Extended sub-partitions as long as there is a boot partition marked Active for them to place their boot files upon.

After installing and imaging XP to Logical Extended sub-partitions created as fourth partition in Disk Mgmt, you'll need to add Win7 and the XP image to the multi-boot menu using EasyBCD 2.0 Add OS tab. This will need to be done from the installed XP since it will capture the boot when installed last, or you can mark Win7 active and use Startup Repair from the Win7 Repair CD to start Win7 and add both XP's using EasyBCD 2.0 which works better from Win7:
Dual Boot Installation with Windows 7 and XP
System Repair Disc - Create
Welcome to EasyBCD 2.0! &#x2014; The NeoSmart Files
Partition - Mark as Active
Startup Repair - Run 3 Separate Times

What I would do is make my Recovery Disks, wipe the HD and clean reinstall Win7 for much better performance without the bloatware and useless utilities. re-install windows 7

If you create three Primary partitions, install XP first to the #2 Primary partition, then reimage the other XP to #3 partition space, when you install Win7 to #1 Primary partition it will auto-configure a multi-boot menu with all three, or any missing after it starts can be added using EasyBCD.

More tips for cleaning up a factory bloatware install without full clean reinstall: HP laptop has used up all four primary partitions

I'm trying to fix friends PC, first of all, they were able to start up the PC, then maybe after about a minute or so many clicks of the mouse, no program would open & it needed the on/off button pressed to switch it off.
I took the PC home and managed to backup their files.
I uninstalled a few programs like spotify etc to see if that would help, but it didn't, i'm thinking it was more software/driver???

anyway, i decided to reinstall Win7 HP. 64bit.

wiped the hard drive, reinstalled windows and i'm trying to update windows, where it just hangs on installing.
I left it overnight and it was still on the same update.

could this be a hardware issue??

anybody come across this before?


just seen a post about posting update instructions, i'll try it when it updates or hangs for hours

"hangs"? no response at all on screen? Not even some animation that it's still busy? No disk light flashing?

Hello, I recently purchased a new computing system and I am unable to install Xp home edition. I have searched other places on the net but was unable to find an answer.
This is the new parts:
Asus P5GD1 Motherboard
Pentium 4 2.66
Maxtor 80 gig (master)
Kinsgton 512 X2

old Parts
Western digital 160 gig
benq DVD+-

I set the boot order to the benq reader, Insert the windows setup disc and it goes through the procedure up loading all the files, then enters the stop error screen where it displays error 0000007b, Describing such things as check for viruses (I am using brand new master Hard drive), check configuration, remove and new controllers etc.

I tried removing the old 160 gig thinking that it has a chance of a virus, and checked connections on the mother board and elsewhere. Anybody have any tips for completing this installation? This is getting to be very annoying.

A:Unable to install xp home on brand new system


Might look a couple of places to start:

First of all, I would download the maxtor utility from their website and prepare your disk from this utility previous to setting up the OS. This utility is free (or if a retail version, came with your new drive) and can partition and format your drive and have it ready to go.

Second, your boot order needs to be:

CD/Dvd - 1st
floppy - 2nd
Maxtor Hard Drive

Don't forget to save before you exit.

Third, make sure you have turned off the raid feature in the BIOS setup menu for your IDE drives to keep it from searching for a raid drive. Don't forget to save before you exit if you change the BIOS setup menu.

Put the Maxtor drive on IDE #1 on the end of the ribbon cable with the jumpers set to master, the CD/DVD in the middle of the ribbon cable with jumpers set to slave.

If everything else is set correctly, you should be able to put the OS disk in the drive, boot up and let it load the OS.

Let us know where you are on this process.

A:System lock ups, crashes and unable to install updates

First thing you should do is turn off the System restore feature in WIndows XP, then restart your machine in Safe Mode with networking.

To turn off System restore, right click my computer on the desktop or start menu and choose properties. Go to System restore tab and check the box that says Turn off system restore.

To start in safe mode you need to hit F8 after the BIOS screen comes up but before the Windows XP splash screen.

Second, install and run scans from Spybot Search & Destroy, SpyBlaster and Ad-Aware Se. (spyblaster doesn't not have a scan function.

After you have ran all of these cleaners, restart your machine, install and run CCleaner. Make sure you run the registry cleaner part of CCLeaner.

I hope this helps.

I'm trying to help a friend whose Compaq Presario C700 laptop was seriously infected. I was able to clean it enough to make recovery discs from the factory recovery partition. I then put a new hard drive in and recovered the system using those discs. After the recovery finished, it boots to Vista Home Premium 32-bit with no service packs. I've tried using Windows Update and it immediately errors out. I have the 32-bit SP1 & SP2 on a CD and neither of them will run.

I'm guessing that this must have happened to others - the inability to update or patch a 'vintage' Vista reinstall and was hoping to find a solution but all my searches have given me nothing that will work. Does anyone have any pointers? Thanks in advance for any ideas.

I recently restored the whole system on my sister's HP because of a virus that I was unable to remove manually.
The system restore went fine until it reached the point where it was going to reinstall Windows. The computer just turned itself off and the software install was not complete. Nor am I able to reinstall it again. Therefore I have to hold down ctrl+alt+del, go to task manager, click on audit.exe and end the process to turn the computer on. But I can't do anything with it in safemode. The main problem is: I can't connect to the internet! It won't find my wireless network even though Network Discovery is on. What can I do about the internet? And is there any way to install Windows again without a CD?
Thanks in advance!

A:Unable to connect to the internet after system restore and Windows install

whats the model of the HP by tapping F10 or F11 as it boots you may get into the recovery manager

i confused is the software now installed on the PC ?

is this a restore going back to a previous date - or a re-install

when you re-install the software you may need to download drivers - lets see a device manager

Device Manager
Post back the results in device manager
If you cannot access the internet with this PC, then you will need to copy the program across to the faulty PC

are there any ! ? or X

There should be an option on the bottom that allows you to delete that partition. Once it is deleted it will be seen as unallocated space and you should be able to install Win 7 on it.

A:clone multiboot two disc win7 xp install to win7 ssd plus disk XPx64

PW confirms that C is the booted OS as signified by the System label - while in Disk Mgmt this label would be Boot. The boot files actually booting Win7 are on D as signified by System Active.

To confirm this please post back screenshot of Disk Management - Post a Screen Capture Image and we will tell you how to correct it once we know for sure. If it confirms it by showing the labels reversed (which would be correct due to PW's unusual labeling scheme) then as long as C is a Primary partition you'd simply Mark C Partition Active and run Startup Repair - Run 3 Separate Times to move boot files to C.

The best way to configure a Dual Boot on separate HD's is to set have each HD boot itself, then set preferred to boot first in BIOS Boot Priority, boot the other (XP) using the one-time BIOS Boot interrupt key at boot. If this is not to your liking, install EasyBCD to Win7 to add XP.

But we need to sort out your Win7 boot first so let's see the screenshot. Confirm also whether XP partition is marked System Active in DIsk Mgmt, or Boot Active in PW.

Scenario is I have a new sata3 SSD drive on which I want to install Win7. The PC has an existing build of Win7 on a different disc which i want to reformat & use for data. I tried this previously and ended up with a dual booting system. Trying to remove the old Win7 installation and format that disc created much trouble so now I'm starting again.

Can someone tell me please how to:
1. Install Win7 on the new SSD disc (I'm assuming this will work ok as I've done it before),
2. Have the system recognise only the new Win7 installation at boot & not the old Win7 installation so I don't have to select which OS to use,
3. Reformat the old Win7 disc and remove any boot references that it might hold.


A:Create Win7 installation on new disc and remove old Win7 install

Only have the SSD connected when you install the new OS.

Then connect your old drive, boot into your new installation and format the old drive.

All done.

Try continuiing the installation to see if it will proceed or offer to roll back, Then try to start it over again watching for issues it flags to resolve. Back up your files, of course. Unplug all peripherals and other HD's.

If it fails I would back up your files, gather program installers and Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7. The steps are the same for retail Win7.

A:Win7 (32bit) to Win7 (64bit) upgrade install error

I believe to go from 32-bit to 64-bit, you will have to boot off the DVD. The installer is a 64 bit application that won't run under 32-bit. Find instructions to create a DVD if you don't already have it.

Good luck!

Bought Toshiba Qosmio X505-896 with Win 7 Home Premium x64 installed (C). Upgraded to Win 7 Pro x64. Partitioned drive with Easeus and did clean install on new partition (E) with another Win 7 Home Premium x64. When boot to the Win 7 Pro partition shows everything proper C drive, E drive, D drive - dvd. But when boot to the Home Premium partition it shows itself as drive C and shows the actual drive C as D, and the dvd as drive E. Home premium installation would not recognize video adapter, network adapter, etc. Not sure what happened during the installation that the drives show differently depending on the boot partition. Was finally able to get network driver loaded and to the internet, so believe Home Premium was activated. Is there a way to correct all this without doing format and another clean install on partition.

A:Custom win7 x win7 install on two partitions

Nothing to correct - this is exactly as it should be in Win7 which always itself as C when booted.

Most drivers are in installer with newer delivered quickly via optional Windows Updates.

Any drivers then missing in Device Manager can be found on the Toshiba Support Downloads webpage for your model, or click Update Driver in Device Manager, then browse to the D:/Windows/System32/Drivers and /driverstore folders to see if it will pick up driver from there. Driver Install - Device Manager

Check the activation status at Computer>Properties. You can insert the Home Premium Product Key on COA sticker there to activate with the license which came with computer.

A:USB Boot Vista Install "Windows unable find system volume meet criteria"

Bit of an odd question... I revived an automated e-mail saying S2926 replied to my thread. It tells me the message in the e-mail but I cannot find the reply on here?

I have managed to get my easy 2 boot usb working with the Vista ISO and I am currently installing as we speak. It just needed de-fragging. Feel so silly. But the original problem remains. I tried changing boot order and enabled boot menu at boot and tried to boot from usb but the problem still remained.

Either way thank you S2926 for your reply.

Hi all, I bought a new HP laptop and it was running over 80 processes when I first turned it on. I really want to wipe everything and start over.

I have an upgrade retail version of Win 7 home premium x64 that I had installed on my desktop last year. Can I use that particular DVD to clean install Windows over the OEM Windows that HP put on my new laptop and then use the OEM Windows serial sticker on the laptop to reactivate Windows? Will there be any problems?

A:Install retail Win7 over OEM Win7

Hello Gixxer, welcome to Seven Forums!

You will have to use the exact same version for the key that was installed to the lappy by the manufacturer to use the COA key with a 'new' install; have a look at this information below and be sure to post back with any further questions you may have and to keep us informed.

After you have copied out or made back-ups of the data you need to save to external media; if you can find an exact Windows version that the PC shipped with you can do a clean install using the activation key on the COA sticker attached to the PC though it may require a robo-call to MS to sort the OEM batch-key.

How to Activate Windows 7 by Phone
If you can't find an exact same version, you could use the info in this tutorial to create an "all versions" installer of any version Windows installer, to install using the same method I posted above.

Windows 7 Universal Installation Disc - Create
After you have made backups of everything you care to save, the best method is to do a complete wipe (secure erase) of the entire Hard Disk Drive first, it over-writes everything, all the old Windows code including all the old drivers/programs, giving you the best possible space to install Windows to.

I had a run-in with MS Office 2007 that ended up (my bad I'm sure) necessitating a repair install of Windows 7 (64 bit) after a complete uninstall of Office. The Windows repair went well with the exception of a couple of drivers; easily adjusted.

Then I did a clean install of Office 2007. It sort of went well. Except that every time I try to do something with it (like accessing Visual Basic to put my macros back in), it's telling me - incessantly - that files don't have sufficient permission blah, blah. Well, I'm setting the permissions but it's over and over and feels like every file in "Program Files (x86)/Common Files/Microsoft Shared/..." needs permission attention.

Is there ANY way to avoid doing this over and over and over and...? And could I have avoided this by setting something different in one of the installs?


Thanks as always for the help.

Do you get asked for the same file or do they change? Try setting the permission at the folder level?

Hi (harddisk failure) - copy/backup install during fast Win7 install My laptop has two particitions C and D C seems to have quite some bad sectors Ran chkdsk yesterday for whole day and it marked out some bad sectors Now when I do fresh install to drive C installation cannot complete Once copying from DVD is over I can pass the quot starting windows quot screen but then it loads the blue desktop and an error pop up saying windows was not installed successfully and try to restart But this just keeps going in circles and never finishes I also tried to install OS on D without formatting D but ended up with the same situation What I am trying now is to back up everything on D and redo the disk partitioning Win7 install - fast copy/backup during install (harddisk failure) and try again But because i do not have an OS now and i cannot install windows on C the only option I have for backing up is using the command line window during the installation to copy files from D to an external usb disk I am using quot xcopy S quot and that is extremely slow driver D has G of data All the other threads about using robocopy etc tools does not apply here because i do not even have an OS So my question is if there is any way I can do the copying backup faster Thanks

A:Win7 install - fast copy/backup during install (harddisk failure)

Get Macrium reflect free on the pc your typing this from and have it make a usb recovery disk when it asks you too then boot to it on the laptop with your external drive also plugged in and then have it make an image of the d partition to your external. You can then erase both partitions in the windows installer and make a fresh one. When it is done you can install Reflect on the laptop and then you can mount that image with it for file transfer back. But if your install is failing it might be your disk is just to far gone at this point in which case you should image your data so you have it anyways.

If you formatted the hdd and installed Windows from a legit source then I would think....if malware is involved...either

I had 20G free on the D drive and I just let Win7 find it and install itself there.

I'm not sure what that really means, or what would happen installing an OS that way.

I install Windows into a pre-defined empty partition, or into unallocated space.

I suggest using WizTree free so you can more easily see all files/folders on a partition.
It displays hidden and protected files without making any Explorer view changes.
They have a Portable Zip available, no installation needed.

Recently i had a windows error that prevented me from logging into my profile, so i ended up doing a restore and that fixed the problem. But now like half of my programs are working, all failing to load. So i was thinking of just doing a clean install of windows and starting over. But the deal is that i dual boot my machine with linux mint, so i was wondering if it would be possible to do a clean install of windows 7 without having to delete the mint partition. thanks for the help in advance.

Welcome to Seven Forums.
Shouldn't be a problem. You should be able to delete the partition that windows resides on, create a new partition, then load Windows 7 in the newly partitioned space.

I have been having so many problems with the Windows 10 installation I'm thinking about going back to Win7 until MS works out all the bugs in Win10.

My PC came with 8.1 and updated to Win 10. Win10 was fine until the last major update when everything went h--- in a hand-basket. Update reset everything to defaults, installed apps I'd uninstalled.

Question: Can I remove the HD with win10 and put it on the shelf until MS gets it running. I want to install a bare HD and install a valid genuine Windows 7 OS on the bare drive. Is there anything I need to know before I give this a try? I know I'll have to reinstall all programs and all missing win7 updates...

Will I be able to install the Win 10 HD at a later date, install updates and be back up and running under Window 10 user accounts?

A:Install Win7 to replace OEM win8.1 w/Win10 install

Hi and welcome to SevenForums,
Since you're talking about a separate win-7 installation on the machine your plan is sound and exactly how you should do it

You might in your bios have to disable fast start and possibly secure boot but otherwise you shouldn't have any problems installing win-7 fresh
You might have to gather drivers if this is a laptop but a desktop would have no issues windows updates will provide most
If you review device manager and see if any unknown device listings are there just post about them same goes for installation of win-7 issues.

A:Not able to install HP Software after clean install of win7,...

I agree, our IT guys screwed this one up, they didnt even know the upgrade thing... :-/ Anyhow, I found a way to install the software I was looking for, just unzip to a folder and run the .msi in the src folder.Although not all the apps had such a folder, most of em had.After playing around with the sw a bit, I realized that I didn't like it anyway, boy am I glad I did not go back to home! and btw, we bought a HP Mini and this one had a nice little software called AppInstl in its swsetup folder, actually just the sw I was looking for. Obviously the same happened with the Mini ("clean" install) but with this app I managed to re-install all the sw I wanted without any problem, except QuickWeb of course, but that seems to be a general problem.Seems to me that HP also saw the need for a "easy install your software after clean install" app. :-) Thanks for all your input, my problem has been solved!Rgds,Geen

Can't Win7 Upgrade updates install or SP1 boot Still could not successfully install the updates The Windows Update troubleshooter was run but it too didn't fix the problem Customer had tried the Upgrade route from an ISO he made Some Win7 updates won't install. Can't install SP1 or Win 7 Upgrade and it ran to about completion but then failed He said the failure point happened when the upgrade was installing Some Win7 updates won't install. Can't install SP1 or Win 7 Upgrade applications or something like that I want to re-run the upgrade but what I want to know is is there something else I could check prior something that help me identify the problem TIA

A:Some Win7 updates won't install. Can't install SP1 or Win 7 Upgrade

Oh, one more thing. When the upgrade failed for the customer, the error message referenced lack of disk space. However, he's clearly enough space (~800 Gb). He couldn't remember the exact wording but the message stated something similar to "not enough disk space to install the applications."

Hi. XP dies in April so I need to upgrade my desktop. I'm going Win 7. I have used the machine heavily for 2 - 3 years (Outlook, Ms Office, video editing, sound editing, web support etc) so registry etc. will be messy. It still runs reliably and quickly enough although I have funnies with USB ports going AWOL from time to time.
My question is: Am I better to have a clean start by formatting the system drive and installing Win7 from scratch, or would it be fine to install Win 7 over XP? It seems that the last option would be much easier in terms of not having to re-install everything and not losing Favourites, cookies etc. However, it may just add to the whatever messiness XP leaves behind.
Are there ways to clean up the machine before doing option 2?

A:Should I install Win7 over XP or reformat and do a clean install?

You most definitely want to format and clean install.

Backup your favorites and all your data first. Get your network drivers on a flash drive or something before you start so you can install them and get out to internet from windows 7.

You will have to re install all your programs.

Maybe you should just buy another hard drive, install it, then install Windows 7 on that Strongly consider a Solid State Drive.

HI, I just installed windows 2000 professional onto my computer. Everything works fine except that the resolution is really grainy. On some web sites I cannot even make out what the words are. I found out that when I go into my monitor settings in display properties I am unable to install the drivers for my monitor. Does anybody know a way in which I can get around this.

A:monitor drivers unable to install on fresh windows 2000 install

Are you really referring to the monitor drivers or the Dispay Adapter drivers?The symptoms you describe sound like the latter issue.

Monitor drivers are no big deal to install, and even if you don't, Windows should use compatible plug and play drivers. Still it's a good idea to install them -- but you get them from the Monitor vendor site. You get the Display Adapter drivers from the Display Adaptor vendor's site.

What Display Adapter model do you have? And are they properly installed?

To install a Monitor driver, you download and unzip the .inf file from the Vendor. Then you select "update driver" and browse to the location of the file you unzipped. Once installed your Monitor should be recognized by model number.

The most likely suspect is a bad video chip.

Now it could be a power related problem too, or heat, but if you have used good parts and a cool case and have tried multiple versions of the driver then it starts looking like hardware failure is likely.

Who makes your 550W power supply?

Double check all of your connections.
And you could go into the UEFI/BIOS and reset all defaults - don't do any tweaking until this problem is resolved.
Is that board running the most recent version of the BIOS?

I recently got into a phase where even safe mode would fail to open. So using Puppy Linux I managed to save my data. However now when it's time to reinstall Win7, the CD won't load. I get only two options which I get even without loading the Cd -
1] Startup Repair (Which apparently never ends)
2] Start Windows Normally (something like that)
My boot options are proper and my hard drive n cd drive works that I know for sure since I used the puppy linux cd. I also dont get the "press any key to load from cd".
What am I supposed to do? I just want to format now.

Welcome to 7 Forums.

Try starting your computer & when it ceases to go any further, load your installation DVD into the DVD drive & then shut down the computer by holding in the start button until it shuts down. Wait a 10 or 15 second & then restart your computer.

If you have the DVD drive as the first boot option as you mention in your post, then it should boot from the DVD & begin the installation process.

ASUS laptop came with Windows 7 Starter and I used Windows Anytime Online upgrade to Windows Ultimate. Now I get a message "new updates are available" and this includes Win7 SP1. When I try to install, I get error message "referenced assembly could not be found. Error:error_sxs_assembly_missing (0x80073701)". I've searched online and tried a couple of fixes but no change. Anyone have a suggestion?

Hi guys

It seems i have done something very stupid

What i did:

Changed my HDD to a dynamic drive - Windows warning said that i would only be able to boot main OS, but since i only have Win7 installed i went ahead.


Laptop won't boot at all tried recovery disc, but no luck. Just a black screen.. Can't even access BIOS

Any suggestions would be much appriciated!

I've had to replace my motherboard. When I start win7 it continuously reboots after the "starting windows 7" screen. I have tried the troubleshooting startup but it didn't detect any problems. I have also booted from the original win7 disk and run the repair utility but it didn't find any problems. I ran "bootsect /nt60 SYS /mbr" from the command prompt but this has not fixed the problem.

I've got Win7 Home edition OEM. Maybe this doesn't allow running off new hardware??

Has anyone got any suggestions?

A:Unable to run win7 on new motherboard

Sounds like a major driver issue.
Have you tried just f8 booting to safe mode?'s possible it won't support new hardware, that would be an activation issue though. Sounds like you aren't even getting in.
